The Index Arts Festival organizers are coordinating a river-themed “Call for Poems” and are inviting all Snohomish County residents to participate.
The poems, which should be based on the theme “Living by the River” will be featured during the August 2 Index Arts Festival on the festival poetry wall. All submitted poetry will be reviewed by the Index Arts Festival Poetry panel, and the panel will choose one submission to serve as the official 2014 festival poem.
Submitted poems should be the author’s original work, written in English, and should be 50 words or less. Snohomish County residency is a requirement to participate in the “Call for Poems.” Poetry submissions will be selected based on the following criteria: Appropriateness for public display, relation to the “living by the river” theme and overall rule compliance.
Poetry can be submitted online at http://indexartsfestivalpoems.wordpress.com/, or mailed to: Index Arts Festival Poems, P.O. Box 200, Index, WA 98256.
By submitting your poem you are granting the Index Arts Festival permission to display your poem in a public setting. Entries are due no later than June 30, 2014.
